Wow! Gardens are producing like crazy! Canning season is in full swing. I visited a gardener last week who was busy busy busy! She was canning beans, tomatoes, beets, pickles and corn. Yes, all on the same day. Canning her produce is how she decided to preserve her harvest. It is a lot of hard and hot work, but the security of winter food is so worth the work. She invited me to see what she had canned so far this year.
So far she has canned over 200 jars of tomatoes, 50 jars of kraut, pickles galore, 120 jars of beets, 400 ears of corn and lots of other goodies. Not only has she done all of this, but she has shared almost this much food with her friends and neighbors. She still has lots of food left in her garden that needs to be preserved. Lots of work ahead for this lady.
Happy Gardening and Canning!
